“iPatientCare always believed in engaging healthcare consumers by giving them an easy but secure access to their own health record; and to that effect, had launched the first version of its Patient Portal way back in 2005! Since then, the Portal has evolved as a mature and independent product that integrates with rest of the iPatientCare suite of products and with third-party EHR systems as well…” said Udayan Mandavia, President/CEO of the Corporation. “A preview of our Patient Kiosk solution was provided to iPatientCare users and channel partners during iPatientCare User Conference 2011 held last November, and was received enthusiastically by all attendees”, announced Kedar Mehta, Chief Technology Officer, iPatientCare, Inc.
iPatientCare’s exhibits attracted numerous foreign attendees and businesses to explore more about iPatientCare products, especially, mobile apps and provider/patient portals. Commenting on the ease of use and simplicity of iPatientCare’s design, said Joseph Pater, Director, Regional Extension Center, Case Western Reserve University, “I wonder why other EHR have not thought about designing Chart Summary and Visit Notes as crisp and appealing as that are delivered by iPatientCare!”
As part of its continued commitment to integrate multitude of products and services portfolio through iPatientCare technology platform, iPatientCare also announced strategic business alliances with leading complimentary technology solutions providers at HIMSS 2012.
